During Oct. & in this part of the state, mornings are usually bright and sunny, The photograph shows amazing floral details. However the day light ends as early as 4.30 PM & soon low light / darkness prevails everywhere. 

Thanks to you, Sir,

Regards
Raghu

Great pictures of Bixa orellana indeed. Family Bixaceae.
The colour of your fruits is really beautiful. I think some edible fruit colour is prepared from this plant.
